California Landscape: En Plein Air
This is a 9"x 12" plein air California landscape in oil on a mahogany luan panel that I finished yesterday. The location is McClellan Park Ranch in Cupertino, California. I used a varnish wash as the first layer and the following palette: ultramarine blue, cobalt blue, pthalo green, carbozole violet, transparent red oxide, cadmium orange, hansa yellow orange, cadmium yellow orange, cadmium green light, and titanium white. There are passages of transparency alternating with opacity.
